As a black woman -- I can relate to & have experienced the challenges of navigating through a society that limits my identity, mobility & clouds my potentials. Viewed as a person of color in today's world comes with many layer-- you may find yourself feeling hopeless, isolated, misunderstood, disrespected & feel pressured to wear different masks to ensure other people feel comfortable. Life can be compiled of pain, fear, anxiety, injustice & also light, love & compassion-- how do we balance ourselves day-to-day? You are not alone, my approach to healing is to provide a safe, honest & supportive space to embrace your authentic-self.

I've also supported many Women in Leadership achieve their goals.
I am a First Generation Vietnamese-American. I grew up in a household with traditional Vietnamese parents who taught me the importance of rituals, family, & strong values. I struggled with cultural & generational differences and I learned ways to embrace my two worlds & improve on my relationship with my family members, while still staying true to myself. I encourage you to utilize the meditation corner before/after our sessions. The relationship between your mind, body & soul is key to your healing and is crucial to gain freedom form suffering (whatever that may be)

I have taught expressive arts therapy (YWCA Counseling Center), grief counseling (JFK University), Pastoral Care (Holmes Institute), lead support groups for adult children of aging parents, for women diagnosed with cancers and long-term illnesses, for teens questioning everything.
Writer John O'Donohue defines my view of being a therapist: "This is what therapy is about: helping people retrieve what has been lost to them, wakening and bringing home their fundamental wholesomeness.. Therapists are like poets: they draw on the power of words in the profoundly creative work of bringing people fully alive to themselves, awakening in them the human capacity for divine imagination that ‘dreams our completion’.”

If you are a BIPOC woman , the natural thing to do would be to say that everything is fine, be strong, and power through all of it on your own b/c that’s how we are “built.
Hey there mama. Feeling a rollercoaster of emotions, and need a moment to think out loud w/o feeling judged? Maybe you are the mama that has experienced a miscarriage, high risk pregnancy, baby in NICU, or infertility. Or perhaps you are having difficulty adjusting to motherhood, not connecting with your newborn and feeling anxious/depressed. Sometimes partners, family and friends don't understand what you go through when creating a little human. One moment there is excitement, the next there is pain when finding out things aren't going as planned.

I specialize in working with women who are insightful, curious, and open to personal growth - from teens struggling with the challenges of school, family, and relationships; to young women coping with career challenges and major life transitions; to women facing later-in-life issues around identity and aging.
Issues stemming from anxiety, stress, depression, and trauma can get in our way of living a satisfying, fulfilling life. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We all have within us the capacity to cope with, and even grow from, hardships and challenges. With my guidance we will explore and process the underlying fears, unmet needs, and negative beliefs that keep you “stuck”. We will cultivate your inner strengths to help you become healthier, more resilient, and enjoy more positivity in your life and your relationships with others.

I believe children and teens can learn, grow, and thrive when they have coping skills, feel empowered, and practice self-care. My goal is to encourage youth to learn who they are and how to advocate for their unique needs. I specialize in working with neurodiverse, gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) youth and their families. I encourage youth to use their strengths and interests in order to grow, heal, and cope. Building self-awareness, such as understanding their own sensory processing and asynchronous development, is an important part of my work with youth.

I believe that the connection between client and therapist is important. Each individual is unique. I take time to connect with you, and then draw from multiple research-backed approaches to address your needs and goals. I have extensive experience working with overwhelm and stress, as well as PTSD, with adults, and with children and families. Because of this, I work well with individuals, couples and families who are working with defenses, automatic reactions, and behavior that negatively impacts their current relationships. I feel honored to work with individuals and families in what I consider to be sacred work.
